Encompass Energy aims to bring a pragmatic, cost-effective approach to reducing energy consumption in buildings. Whether new construction or renovation of a building, thoughtful re-purposing of an existing space, or something altogether outside the normally defined realm of "buildings," our team will assist the project and team to reduce energy use, carbon emissions, and utility costs.
Encompass Energy provides a selection of sustainability services to assist building owners, developers, and architects in designing and constructing the most energy efficient and sustainable building that meets the project budget. Please see Services.
